HP unveils Powerup Backpack with 22,400 mAh inside
Charging all devices one usually carries around can be quite tricky if this operation needs to be performed while on the road. Portable battery packs for smartphones and phablets might not be that bulky, but having enough power for a laptop, a tablet, and a handset is not something a device that easily fits in a pocket can do for now. Fortunately, the HP Powerup Backpack can provide enough juice for all the devices mentioned above, next to the usual protection offered by a regular backpack.
HP's new smart backpack has an impressive battery inside, which provides no less than 22,400 mAh. According to its maker, the Powerup Backpack can charge a typical smartphone 10 times, while a regular tablet can be fully juiced up at least 3 times. At last, this backpack can also fully charge most HP notebooks. Unfortunately, it does not offer USB Type-C connectivity or support for fast charging. However, its smart capabilities consist of a temperature sensor that keeps heat under control, as well as the ability to configure the charging priority when multiple devices are connected.
Amazon has the HP Powerup Backpack up for pre-order right now, its price being $199.99 USD. The bad part is that shipments are scheduled to begin in October.
